With this Northstar Football News recruiting profile, we head over to Eden Prairie to chat with Forrest Scheel, who is a stout offensive lineman for the Eagles. We chatted with Scheel about his 2019 season at Eden Prairie, his recruiting trail, and much more.
Forrest Scheel (Class of 2021)
Position: Offensive Line
High School Program: Eden Prairie
Get to Know Forrest Scheel
Scheel plays offensive line for the Eagles and with his emphasis on run blocking as his strongest category on the line. His biggest strength on the field is knowing exactly what the defensive line is doing and when the linebackers are coming into the blitz. His football IQ in those two areas is excellent.
Favorite Part About Offensive Line
Scheel gave a very similar answer to what Alex Tack of Monticello gave as far as a favorite thing on the offensive line, which is getting the opportunity to pancake someone on every given play.
Scheel is a Division I talent with his size and his offensive line grit and has his visits to prove it. He’s taken visits to Iowa State, Nebraska, Minnesota and chatted with Kansas State. On the FCS side, he’s taken visits to Fargo at NDSU and Brookings at SDSU. It will be interesting to see where Scheel lands in Division I over the next year or so.
Improvements by Scheel
After the 2019 season, Scheel’s coaches at Eden Prairie said to work on his weight room strength as well as his pass blocking ability. He’s gone to work after Eden Prairie’s stunning playoff exit, as he’s been working out 3- 4 times a week at the high school, and working 2-4 times per week with his trainer at the Horsepower Gym in Fridley as well. Scheel has been working his tail off, as we’ve been in touch with his for a recruiting report for a while in which he’s been “working hard” in all areas of his off-season training.
Scheel’s biggest mentors are his father and another one of his trainers, that goes by Matt. His dad and Matt have “helped me become the player I am over the years and have a strong mindset with what I’m trying to accomplish” he told Northstar Football News.
